One of the biggest mistakes anyone can make is not backing up important information. There are so many different ways to back up your data that there is no excuse for losing important information.
Items that you may want to Back up:
◊ Family photos & videos
◊ Tax documents
◊ Business files
◊ Scanned items that you have discarded
◊ Artistic creations
◊ Really anything that would cause you stress if lost
The key point to remember is to back up your information somewhere other than your PC. You want the data safe in case your computer or laptop turns into a glorified paper weight.
The quick and easy way it to buy an external hard drive. Save the items there. You can manually save the items or you can get software to do that for you. (Windows also offers a built in option) There are dozens of software options to help you automate your backup (some found here) plus you can opt for a paid online source such as Carbonite, Google Drive, Dropbox and more.
The best method for data that you really want to protect is to follow the 3 – 2 – 1 Rule.
It is better to invest in a back up process and avoid the loss of important files and irreplaceable memories.
